ANOTHER secret to Simon Cowell's natural beauty Make-up artist reveals yet another anti-ageing tool in star's arsenal
Simon Cowell uses 'Transformulas' products on Britain's Got Talent

Earlier this week, it was revealed Simon Cowell has replaced Botox injections with a miracle serum made with Japanese herbs and water from the bottom of the sea in order to maintain his youthful looks.
The serum – called Shinso skin care – is said to improve the appearance of skin within minutes and give a 'natural facelift'. However with a price tag of 155 to 255 for a bottle, it isn't a product most of us will be able to afford to add to our beauty regime.
But there is still hope for anyone who wants to emulate Cowell's efforts to look younger, without having his millions in the bank, as the serum isn't the only secret weapon in his arsenal.
Holding back the years: Simon Cowell has been using a range of anti-ageing beauty products to help him look younger on Britain's Got Talent
The make-up artist who works with him on Britain's Got Talent has revealed he also uses products from 'Transformulas' to prevent the signs of premature ageing.
Make-up artist Julia Carta, who has also worked with stars including Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, said she has used the 'FaceContour Tightening Crme' and 'Eye-lightening Serum' from the beauty range while preparing Cowell, 52, for appearances on the TV talent show.
The products were developed by beauty fanatic Rosalind Chapman who, due to a fear of needles, wanted anti-ageing solutions that didn't involve injections or surgery – that were also affordable.
The 'FaceContour Tightening crme', priced at 36.95 for 15ml, is said to contain 'potent ingredients' that 'help lift, define and sculpt the face to restore its natural beauty'. According to their research, 75 per cent of users saw a reduction in under eye bags, lines and wrinkles after using it.

Meanwhile, the 'Eye-lightening serum' offers another way to tackle the appearance of ageing under the eyes. The product promises to fade black bags using nanotechnology and is priced at 29.95 for 10ml.
Cowell has been seeking alternative anti-ageing remedies after it appeared he had taken his reliance on Botox too far on last year's Britain's Got Talent.
Viewers were alarmed by the appearance of his bruised face and droopy eyelid, which was blamed on using the face-freezing injections too much.

A source from the show said at the time: 'Simon had overdone things a little with the Botox and it soon showed up on camera – especially as we film in high definition, which is particularly unforgiving.'
Cowell isn't the only celeb who is a fan of Transformulas products. Victoria Beckham is said to use the brand's EyeLifting Gel, that is said to refresh the delicate skin under the eye using plant extracts.
Transformulas is available from stores including Next, Harrords and Fenwick as well as on their website www.transformulas.com.
